    Manual for as long as I can.

    I've only owned a few automatics in my life - mostly the cars that my wife drives.

    Starting in 1978 up to today I've always had a manual transmission car as a daily driver.
    69 Ford pick up 3 on the tree - My First Car
    79 BMW 320i 4 speed
    79 BMW 528i 4 speed
    79 Saab 900 hatch 5 speed
    86 Saab 900 sedan 5 speed
    76 BMW 3.0Si sedan 4 speed
    74 BMW 2002 coupe 5 speed
    88 Pontiac Fiero GT 5 speed
    89 Audi Quattro wagon 5 speed
    95 Saab 900S 5 speed
    98 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 6 speed
    03 Ford Focus SVT 6 speed
    13 Ford Focus 5 speed
    15 Ford Focus 5 speed - My Current Daily Driver

    Luckily I don't have to put up with much city traffic. Even then I'd probably be OK with it. Driving is entertainment for me. Without a manual it isn't as entertaining.

    I'll be disappointed and/or depressed when I can't have a manual to drive.

    Quoted from jawjaw:

    My kids will start driving soon and I want to teach them how to drive a manual. With 3 kids, that's just asking for trouble but that's me.

    I taught both of my boys to drive on our 1995 900S with manual transmission. The first day or two of training they both swore at me. Once they had it down they would prefer to drive a manual to this day. I handed down my 13 Ford Focus to my oldest when I got my 15 Focus. He's had the car for about 16 months now and lives in the Washington DC metro area which is as bad as anywhere for driving a manual. I've asked if he is tired of having the MT even living where he does and he has no desire to part with it and really enjoys it.
